Storyline

Trevor Grainger, Amber Croft and Rob Rankus are three, like, average dudes who run Go Time Liquidators - an eBay auction business. Trevor likes Stephen King, Amber wants to be a singer-songwriter, and Rob's into the Chili Peppers. Amber used to date Trevor but now she's going to marry Rob. They read the obituaries in order to find things they can turn into money on the internet. Pretty soon they end up in the destroyed house of a dead dude named Bill Zill, and they're also seriously obsessing over watching a surveillance-cam website called fourboxes.tv. Fourboxes.tv is a dusty, digital window into the wacked-out world of a creep they call Havoc. Havoc didn't know his apartment was wired up when he moved in. And he's weird. He sleeps in a bat-cage, builds bombs in a dungeon, and looks like he's planning to kill people on a seriously massive scale. Trevor, Amber and Rob decide they have to do something to find and stop Havoc, wherever he is. Or...maybe not - they could just keep ... Written by M. Osbourne

Great Indie Thriller
26 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really like the way this movie was made and the story is well written and executed. I won't give away any of the plot, which has some interesting twists and turns. However, the way this story is put together is exactly what indie films are about in my opinion. The movie has a slow start, with a definitive tone, and most of the action is in the last third of the movie, but the setting and character development in the first 40 minutes is the essential part of the film. Rather than being thrust right into the plot, the audience experiences it unfold with the characters. What I dislike about so many indie thrillers is the action tends to unfold in predictable ways along very similar time lines, and while the character development is supposed to be shaped through the action in the film, many times there is not enough care taken in exploring the characters and their relationships. This leaves plots where things seem to just happen to a group of people we don't care about. This film is the opposite, and you find yourself trying to figure out the mystery right alongside the characters.
